While attending tho institute
last week, Mrs. Alexandor left
Grant to care for tho children.
Whilo ho was repairing a binder
at tho barn tho children were
playing at tho wood-pilo. Miss
ing tho children Grant went to
tho house to see what they were
doing and the littlo boy met him
at tho door and told him that his
sister was sick and had gono to
bed. Grant wont in and asked
tho littlo ono what tho trouble
was. She said she had cut her
finger and hold up her right hand
which was minus tho first two
fingers at tho second joint. The
children had tied them up and
they had scarcely bled at all.
Tho boy had severed tho fingers
with an ax whilo playing at tho

peculiar and very painful acci
dent last Saturday. Ho was to
havo services at Montrose and
Saturday morning ho hired a
horso and buggy at Ardmoro, to
drive ovei a distance of fifteen
miles. Tho only distinguishing
feature of his horso from other
horses was his extreme laziness.
At a sharp angle in tho x'oad
about eight miles from Montrose
in somo unaccountable way tho
horso moved a littlo quicker than
Father oxpectod and ho was
thrown violently to tho ground,
whoro ho lay unconscious, until
somotimo after whon a coAV-boy
oamo along and found him. Ho
placed tho unconscious man in
tho buggy, tho horso had stop
pod a few rods away, and took
him on to Montrcsobut thero be

Ardmoro tho same ovening.
It was found that his wrist was
dislocated and ono of 'tho botfSsj
broken, and his faco and body
sovorely skincd and bruised. Ho

Olnoysville, R. I., Aug. 2, '95.
Sinco leaving Hemingford, I
havo traveled over 3,000 miles
and havo soon a groat variety of
country, but nono that I like so
well as Box Butte. In Iowa I
noticed that crops wero but littlo
better than at homo, hay being
very poor. Throughout 111.,
Ind., N. Y., clear down to old
Mass., I hoard tho same com
plaint of light crops, all caused
by the drouth in June. In the
great fruit states of N. H. and
Vermont tho cherries all rotfcedj
on tho trees. Apples aro aialf
crop. Tho prospect for a crop
of pears, peaches and grapes is
fair. Potato vinos aro dead and
potatoes not matured. Farmers
aro digging them but it will bo
hard to provont them from de
caying. It looks odd to a wos
tern man to see their one and
two acre fields of corn and pota
toes. Times aro very dull here
but show sitms of improvement:
I expect to return about Sept. 1st.

about fifteen years of age, wont in
swimming in Bryant's pond last
Saturday about noon. Ho did not
appear at tho house that day and it
was feared that ho was drowned.
The pond was dragged aud divers
searched uutil Sunday afternoon
when tho body was found with tho
legs doubled up indicating that
tho boy had been taken with cramps
and being a'ono in tho water at
tho time was unable to save him
self or get aid. His folks livo in
Box Butte county not far from

I do not wish to enter into a
controversy with the editor of the
Guido, but his paper of tho 7th
inst,, contains an item which is
misleading and exaggerated.
While tho conversation roforrod to
in tho article i partly true, tho
writer will havo to omit such
phrases as "Like mighty well" and
'Chief" before ho can got down to
the facts in the matter. His wan
dering is somewhat surprising, as
the Journalist has a reputation for
truthfulness. Ono would infer
from the writing that I would Blur
the clerk, I wish to say that such
is a grand misrepresentation for I
would not do such a thing for any
consideration, as 1 believe that Mr.
Ncal is without a peer in his offic
ial capacity. ), E. Jounhon.
